Hello:

I have a project which I was doing through Wordfast. It is still incomplete, that means: several files are already translated (still "unclean", that means, bilingual files), the remaining are still plain .doc files. I want to resume the project using Trados 2011, i. e. review and clean those already translated (updating my TM with the corrections made during review) and translate those still untouched.

As a test, I managed to open and review an already translated file (not sure if the TM is being corrected, though. Before starting to use Trados, I converted and imported all my TMs, so all segments already translated in this project are there in the TM). However, I can only save it as a bilingual, unclean file. Is there any way I can generate a clean, target-only file within Trados, or I'll have to clean everything through Wordfast after it's done?

Thank you


Théo

Save Target As Mar 9, 2014

Under "File" Menu -> use "Save Target As (Shift+F12)" command, it will save your file in cleaned monolingual file (Word, Excel whatever original source file).

It still isn't working Mar 9, 2014

Thanks, but I've done that and the target file is still a bilingual document, when I type Ctrl + , I can see the source text just as before.
